Brooke

My name is Brooke Leavitt. I come from a small town in Nevada where I grew up on a 27 acre ranch. Growing up on a ranch, I learned how to be a hard worker and to not be afraid to get messy. I have two older brothers and an older sister, and lots of animal family members! I'm a huge animal lover. I love to spend time with family and be the best Aunt that I can be to my two nieces. My number one hobby has always been dancing. I love all styles, but Hip Hop and Jazz are my favorites. I love to listen to music, go on hikes, watch movies, and cooking.

I've worked with children of all ages for 11 years, and I absolutely love it. I am currently pursuing a degree in HDFS to become a Occupational Therapist. I hope to become certified in special education as well. Working with children has been my passion since I was old enough to have a job! I couldn't imagine having any other type of career.

Hi my name is Allysan Thomas, but I like to go by Ally. I grew up in a military family, I have one brother and two sisters. I moved to Reno from California to pursue my dream of becoming a BCBA (Board Certified Behavioral Analyst) and work with individuals with autism. I am currently attending University of Nevada, Reno working on getting my bachelors degree in Behavioral Analysis. Once that is achieved, I will be going on to graduate school. In my free time I like to be outside hiking or running. My dream is to travel to different countries and do behavioral therapy.

Hi! My name is Francesca Milana. I am 20 years old and am currently a junior at the University of Nevada, Reno with a major of Sociology and a minor of Spanish. I was born in Concord, Massachusetts and spent the first two years of my life growing up in Rome, Italy. Then, I moved to Pleasanton CA when I was about 5 and have lived there since. I have two wonderful parents, an incredibly cute dog, and a little brother who is currently a freshman at UNR. I love working with kids and after I graduate I want to go back to California to get my teaching credential to be able to teach Elementary School. I have a lot of experience in child care, from babysitting to nannying to volunteering in different classrooms. I love spending time with my friends and family and fitness is something that is very important to me as well. I'm so excited to be apart of this team and can't wait to spend time with the kids!

Morgan
Morgan

I grew up in Shasta Lake, CA and moved over to Reno in 2014 to attend the University of Nevada, Reno. My ultimate goal ever since I was 6 years old was to become a physician. I was inspired by my father as he would come home from a long day in the Emergency Room and tell me about his day and the lives he saved. All the incredible stories have given me motivation and everything I have done up until this point has been to achieve my goal. At the University I majored in both Political Science and Biology and minored in Chemistry. However, I did not stop there, I also taught both Genetics and Microbiology for nursing students and worked in multiple labs.
